"I learned more Spanish in the short time with you then I have in the past year.  I have bought books, tapes and software to learn Spanish for my Construction Business without much success.  Thanks again and I look forward to seeing you in Seattle again soon"
- Tom Jaycox, PS Plats, Inc.

"Spanish in a pinch was no gamble. It's a greatly effective way to save money time and your sanity."
- Daniel Vazquez, Brosco Product Specialist (Southern Division)

"I would highly recommend Deby Jones and the staff at 2nd Language Success (Spanish in a Pinch) if you ever have a future need for a short course in construction Spanglish."
- Tom Wood, ElkCorp Coaching = Expectations>Instructions>Inspection Director, Professional Development

"I actually did have to use a card today for a contractor who didn't speak English. I got by just fine!!! He laughed when he realized what I was trying to do and said, 'Thank you senorita Black!' Some times this little communication is all people need to make their days easier!!!!
- Lily Black, Chief Building Official New Jersey

"Deby is a teacher that gets the class involved and has a wonderfully unique way of getting her material across.  Over 95% of her evaluations were so positive and upbeat the management was duly impressed. No one falls asleep in her classes!  And I had numerous calls from our staff following the classes that they had immediately used the material and were very grateful for the manuals and information provided by Deby and Spanish in a Pinch."
- Karen Wolfe, L.A. County Department of Public Works Building and Safety Division

"This is the best, and most needed and necessary class that code officials should take.  It was not only informative, but fun and made you want to learn more about Spanish.  When I got back to work, I actually had to use the card the next day at a job site. Deby is the best instructor!!!!"
- Vicki McClintock, Senesac, CFM; Building & Code Enf. Officer Westmont, IL 60559

"As a non-Spanish speaker, I found the workshop extremely useful. By the end of the workshop, I was able to speak some simple zoning enforcement related phrases with confidence and it also motivated me for learning more Spanish phrases for the future. Even staff who speak Spanish conversationally have indicated that the workshop was useful for learning industry-related vocabulary. It is my recommendation that we provide this workshop at least once a year for new as well as existing staff, to continue to improve productivity and communication with the public as well as promote workforce excellence. I would also encourage more zoning enforcement and front counter staff to attend the workshop, even those who are already fluent in Spanish, to ensure consistency in how the department communicates with the public with regards to planning and zoning issues. Thanks again. Hope to work together again soon."
- Patricia L. Hachiya, Supervising Regional Planner Department of Regional Planning; Zoning Enforcement I

"We have never had such an energetic instructor! You brought such an excitement to our conference and created a buzz that lasted for days."
- Brad Carpenter, Bonneville Chapter ICC

"The best workshop ever attended! Excellent workshop for the construction and building code officials."
- Rutgers University Center of Government, Services Course Evaluation

- Ryan C. Lee, MBA, CphT, American Association of Pharmacy Technicians

"The workshop, interaction, VisualPhonetics and 'cheat sheets' are empowering!"
